Resume + Portfolio


Michigan State University, B.A. in Communication.

Please contact me to request a copy of my professional resume.

A transplant to Music City from Ann Arbor, MI, I’m currently working as a Digital Marketer and enjoying every bit of this Nashville adventure.

I’m an experienced freelancer, but for two and a half years, I worked as a Digital Media Manager and General Contractor for AM1170, the digital marketing and social media arm of Songs of the Architect: an Atlanta and Nashville based music publishing and songwriting collective, founded by Kristian Bush, one half of international super duo Sugarland. I’ve also spent time recently in promotions and artist management at both Marbaloo, a third-party digital marketing company, as well as RareSpark Media Group, Inc., a publishing and management group on Music Row. Check out my portfolio below in addition to the Creative Digital Content page for up to date work samples.
